Through this special version of the well-regarded Timbalooloo program developed by Oran Etkin, children will explore various musical concepts in an intuitive and fun manner gaining familiarity with Hebrew vocabulary as well as the language of music. During Timbalooloo classes, instruments come to life and “talk” through their music.
